Working with Different Types of Web Elements
Selenium empowers you to interact with a wide variety of web elements, making it a versatile tool for automation testing.
Textboxes, Buttons, Checkboxes, and Radio Buttons
From filling in forms to clicking buttons and selecting options, Selenium makes handling these common web elements a breeze. You can simulate user interactions seamlessly.
Dropdowns and Multiple Select
Dropdown menus and multiple select options are essential components of many web applications. Selenium enables you to choose options, verify selections, and work with these elements effectively.
Alerts and Pop-ups
Handling alerts and pop-ups is crucial when testing web applications that trigger notifications or require user input. Selenium provides methods to accept, dismiss, or extract information from these dialogs.
Synchronization in Selenium
Synchronization is vital in automation testing to ensure that your test scripts run smoothly, especially in cases where elements may load at different speeds.
Implicit and Explicit Waits
With implicit wait, Selenium will wait a set number of seconds before an exception is thrown if the element does not appear straight away. However, the explicit wait allows one to wait for certain conditions before proceeding with the tests.
Fluent waits are a more flexible way of waiting for elements. You can specify both the maximum amount of time to wait and the polling frequency, making your tests more efficient and responsive.
Handling Browser Windows and Tabs
In web applications, working with multiple browser windows and tabs is common. Selenium provides methods to manage and switch between these windows, ensuring you can test various scenarios seamlessly.
Capturing Screenshots and Handling Cookies
Selenium goes beyond testing functionality; it also helps you maintain and monitor the state of your application. You can capture screenshots during test execution for debugging or reporting purposes. Additionally, Selenium allows you to manage cookies, which can be crucial for certain test scenarios.
